Pleads Not Guilty In Fatal Crash

Kelly O’Rourke, age 39, of Alhambra, pled not guilty in Clinton County Circuit Court to charges stemming from a fatal crash that occurred the night of March 20th, south of Keyesport.

He is charged with two felony counts of alleged aggravated driving while under the influence of alcohol.
